Choose from the options above to customize a satellite view. This satellite imagery come from the GOES satellite page of NASA's Global Hydrology and Climate Center. Our site uses their build a satellite feature to allow you to select the coordinates you want to view. Depending on the coordinates you enter, our page will determine the best satellite images to view from the various images available. This satellite page works best for the Atlantic and East Pacific basins, using different views from the satellites GOES East and GOES West. Global composite imagery contains Meteosat data over Africa and Europe from EUMETSAT. By international agreement, Meteosat data is only available every six hours. For some areas that lie near the edge of where tropical cyclones usually form or eventually dissipate, satellite images may appear distorted due to the angle the imagery is photographed from by the stationary satellite. During satellite eclipse periods, outages or due to other issues, satellite imagery may be unavailable through this display. Visit NOAA's Office of Satellite and Product Operations page for other GOES imagery if you experience any problems using this display.

When you want to reload your satellite view, just click the "View Satellite" button again. If you want to ever visit the same satellite image or loop again, just bookmark this page. If you want to view the imagery outside of this frame, click the "Remove frame" link. You can bookmark that page for a direct link to the page at NASA.

You can also simply click the map below to view an infrared satellite image of the area you click.
